    Hi,
    Just starting out in raw. I have Photoshop cs2 withthe canon plug (3.1)
    When I open the canon image (raw) it has a lot of very bright red areas,
    mainly on the white areas of the picture. After adjusting the settings or
    using "auto" the red blotches are still there. However when I save the
    picture as jpg or tiff they are gone and I have a great picture.

    If I open the same raw pic in another program (Rawshooter or Canons own
    Digital Photo pro ) the red blotches are not present.

    The Camera space is set on sRGB as default. I tried to set the camera to
    adobe RGB but there is no change.


    Any help would be appreciated,

    Thanks and regards
    Tom

  2. You say you are using the Canon plugin? I have no experience with it,
    but I can say that Adobe's plugin that comes with CS2 (and can be
    updated online) is superb. I would simply remove the plugin and give it
    a try again to see if the problem returns or not. I suspect it will
    not. My brother shoots Canon RAW and I can open any RAW file he sends
    me without issue.

    Somewhere in there you'l find a switch that makes the blown highlights
    render as red splotches. Something similar for blocked lowlights, if
    I'm not mistaken.

    You have highlight-clipping warnings enabled. Uncheck the "highlights"
    thingy.

  6. All is not well.

    You should leave it on. This how you can tell how well you are
    adjusting for blown high-lights. By the way the dark blue spots are
    telling you where you've plugged the shadows.

    Why are you using ACR if you don't know how it works and what the
    settings are for?

    I would suggest you need to read:

    Why am I using ACR if I don't know how it works... Simple, to learn how it
    works and in time become proficient.
    When I started using the Pc in 1984 there were a lot of thingies that I did
    not understand both in DOS and within the hardware.Today I am able to make a
    reasonable living from the "old Pc", networking, programing and lecturing.
    I am sure that is how most of us start, including your good self.
    Anyway I will try to get a copy of the book you suggested

    Thanks

  8. No, I didn't start that way. I read the manual first.
